These are the books my boys loved from ages 2 to 5.


Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

There are lots of animals in this book, bright colors, and you can make animal sounds to go along with the text. Always a win.

Little Blue Truck 

My boys loved the Little Blue Truck. There's farm animals that you can make noises for, and the kids love to BEEP like the truck.

Elephant & Piggie 

The Elephant and Piggie series is engaging and fun. The characters are fun to follow through their friendship and adventures.

I'm a Dirty Dinosaur

A short, fun book with colorful illustrations that talks about a dinosaur who doesn't want to take a bath... but finally does. Lots of rhyming and my kids think it's hilarious.

Too Many Moose

A book about a girl who loves her pet moose so much that she orders more. Cute book where she discovers that you can have too much of a good thing.

Walter The Farting Dog

Bring tissues for reading this one: The first time we read this I cried because I was laughing so hard. If you have boys, you know farting dogs are a winning book topic.
